Journey to Wellness
The journey to wellness take time and is long
Those who get well are exceptionally strong
For depression can kill, but we survived
Your goal to recover has kept you alive
It’s okay not to be okay, let your emotions show
You’re on a road of recovery yes it might be slow
You can pick up the pieces and make a new start
Courage, love and hope will keep you from falling apart
When you recover what will you do?
When you recover will you still be you?
Will you be stronger, will you be new?
You will recover from what you’ve been through
Life came to us and hit early
You all made us see clearly
There’s a world for us, places to visit
You are all the reasons we can see it
You give us a smile
And all go the extra mile
You give us a helping hand and time
You know when we’re not fine
You help us move forward but not forget
You help us not feel any regret
There are things we can’t erase
You make us realise recovery isn’t a race
Coming here realising we’re not fighting a battle alone
Nightingale House is a safe zone
